Theme for Nov. 26-Dec. 20: Where We Live/Community Helpers/Holidays
**I will be sending home a suggestion sheet today with theme related activities.** Feel free to try some of these activities with your children at home!
Throughout the last week in Nov. and the month of December we will discuss our neighborhoods/where we live. This Unit will also focus on various Community Helpers and why they are important to us.
We will also learn about how people in our Community Celebrate. We will learn about December Holidays such as : Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. We will read stories and participate in activities to help us understand these holidays.
Any parent who would like to volunteer to come and read a holiday story or talk about a holiday tradition with our class is welcome to sign up! I sent a letter home about this today. We would love t have parents come for a holiday visit!

During the year we will be working on specific themes in our class. Our December theme will be :” Where We Live/Community Helpers/Holidays”. Today I will be sending a sheet home describing some of the activities related to this theme.

Ongoing Practice: All children should be working on Identifying Upper Case Letters and Numbers from 1 to 10. We will work on this in school. It would be helpful to practice naming letters and numbers at home! Thanks!
